Another rock star who has decided to to renege on retirement is legendary Deep Purple and Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale. He ain’t going anywhere, this on the eve of the 30th anniversary of Whitesnake’s self-titled album, which came out in April of 1987.

Speaking of which, this is another disc that elicited a jubilant “What the heck is this?!” moment for me. And it was almost instantaneous, mere moments after popping the cassette into my blaster and hearing the thunderous opening guitar riff from John Sykes and Mr. Coverdale with his bluesy roar singing “A black cat moans when he’s burning with the fever” ,…

,…the rest of the album had me glued to said blaster, with this track hands down my favorite tune off the album,…

Not surprisingly, it ranks among Coverdale’s finest works.

How about you? What’s your favorite tune off “Whitesnake”?
